"David Rowe stands out from the average free and open
source software person in at least two respects: he has done
remarkable things with both software and hardware and despite this
he is a very modest, low-key person.
"It is fair to describe him as one of many unheralded
Australians who does sterling work but is overshadowed by the many
empty vessels who make a huge sound.
"Rowe is involved in several projects, one of them being an
outfit called The Village Telco, which is trying to provide
communications to the African continent using open source telephony
software and hardware. The project is sponsored by The Shuttleworth
"He is also involved in a free telephony project using similar
components, building a network in East Timor, and developing an
open source low bitrate speech codec."
